Wet Grinding Bronze Plate in Epoxy

These pictures show me wet grinding the bronze plate.

The purpose is to keep out air/oxygen from the boundry between epoxy and bronze. When bronze is grinded wet oxygen cannot reach the newly exposed metall. This makes for better adheasion.

Later the epoxy will be grinded to get rid of carbonates just before it is set in elastic NM-epoxy to be glued to the hull

To be continued…
